Raw fennel is crisp and tasty, a perfect complement to apples and arugula.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Bake walnuts in a single layer in a shallow pan 7 to 9 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through.

Step 2

Meanwhile, whisk together olive oil and next 4 ingredients; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3

Cut apple, fennel, and celery into thin slices, using a mandoline or sharp knife. Toss arugula with a small amount of vinaigrette. Arrange arugula on a serving platter. Toss apple, fennel, celery, and parsley with desired amount of vinaigrette. Top arugula with apple mixture; sprinkle with walnuts and salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with any remaining vinaigrette.
